The first crossover event between NetEase Games‘ mobile video game Vikingard and MGM’s hit television series, Vikings, will feature content and themed events related to the show’s first season from August 23rd.
The first Vikings-themed integration into Vikingard will allow players to recruit and battle alongside the series’ characters Ragnar, Lagertha, Rollo and Floki. Once the first in-game integration is complete, these four Vikings characters will accompany and help players in their quests to seize territories and attack cities.
Players can join and advise Ragnar on his path to become king, or invite the characters to visit their own tribes and receive insight into their journeys, as well as earn exclusive rewards.
NetEase Games has also revealed that there are more Vikings-themed crossovers planned for the future, with additional limited-time integrations in the works that will expand players’ journeys through the Vikings universe even further.
